Gently seasoned
As soon as I had learned that "Nagaranga" is by no means the neighboring crater of Ngorongoro, but is called "Mandarin", I was very excited. After all, the mention of the same fruit in conventional fragrances is often a euphemism for the excessive use of chemistry, which apparently takes advantage of a similarity between hedion and mandarin. So at least my impression after various corresponding tests, especially Lutens' anemic 'L'Eau Serge Lutens' and Goutal's test tube slip 'L'Île au Thé' are called. So such things can only get better in the field of natural scents.

Now Mandarine does not appear at all in the data, however. Maybe - which would of course be perfectly all right - it should be made of other materials. In addition to the two obvious candidates listed for the top note, the mysterious "flowery notes" (not listed on the manufacturer's page) would also be an option, after all there are enough rose varieties with citrus fruit ambitions of all kinds.

In fact, the prelude for me by no means clearly smells like mandarin, but I first think of a nimm2 candy that can't quite decide whether it wants to be orange or yellow. Only after a few minutes does the sweetness and acidity form a picture that can pass as mature, albeit not overripe, mandarin. How much nicer it is than the plastic pseudo citrus fruits from the abovementioned mistakes! I suspect that there is also a portion of lemon verbena, also hidden under "flowery notes". And everything together is not just "nice", because the citrus landscape can be foreseen to have a certain cheese footiness, which remains present for a while even when creamy aspects are added in the course of the morning.

The part beginning with this is well advised. Pleasantly balanced freshness between fruity, sweet and sour, arranged on a creamy base that maintains a strong, tart side. Wood for my sake, resin on the threshold to bitterness - everything gets there, but I also sense an idea of rocky patchoulis, as I had already enjoyed (to stick with natural scents) in 'Limestone' by Thorn & Bloom. At the same time, the "flowery notes" open up scope for speculation that extends to early bloomers.

Around midday, a creamy fragrance of now essentially balsamic-sugar sweetness was created, which is of course framed and tastefully ventilated by a remnant of citrus fruit, light wood and a carefully seasoned, yet clearly perceptible bitterness, most likely of all of woody origin. Successful.

A musky approach in the exit puzzles me, which emerges from the early afternoon. What's this in a natural scent? But there are substitutes, the present one would be a particularly close copy to conventional fragrances. Strangely enough, this leads to the fact that the fragrance can't fully recall the usual plus of the natural fragrance perfumery, namely the aromatic end, it actually becomes a bit untypically one-dimensional-dull to the rear.

I'd like to thank Bellemorte for the rehearsal.

Under the mandarin tree
Nagaranga is Sanskrit and means mandarin, and so it smells right at the beginning. But not only the mandarin also lemon and wood are determining in the opening of the fragrance.

Soon a note of cardamom is added - I guess there is black cardamom - while the lemon and the wood are still very present. This may not sound so great now, but it is a very nice combination.

The citrus withdraws after a good hour, but remains to be smelled in the background. I can't really smell the floral notes and the pepper and the cardamom gets weaker after about two hours.

Now, until the end, woody, soft notes of amber and amyris determine the fragrance.

Nagaranga & Santal Citronne is a very successful for me rather masculine fragrance that can always be worn except in winter.

The charisma is rather weak, the durability is about six hours with me.

Generic woody citrus
Nagaranga & Santal Citronné is very citrus-focused on my skin. The opening is mostly grapefruit with a tiny bit of red berry nuance, less vivid and less bright than Eau de Thé & Gingembre. I don't smell much creamy/milky quality of sandalwood, either. The base is a rather abstract musky woody background, with occasional peeks of spicy patchouli.

The fragrances remains mostly close to the skin and lasts around 5 hours.

I was not very impressed by Nagaranga & Santal Citronné, which is kind of a generic woody musky citrus. But it's not bad at all, especially considering its affordable price. I think it would be quite versatile as a pick-me-up.
